The Information Processing Group is concerned with fundamental issues in the area of communications, in particular coding and information theory. Information theory establishes the limits of communications – what is achievable and what is not. Coding theory tries to devise low complexity schemes that approach these limits.


The group is composed of four laboratories :

  • Communication Theory Laboratory (LTHC)
  • Information Theory Laboratory (LTHI)
  • Mobile Communications Laboratory (LCM)
  • Laboratory for Information in Networked Systems (LINX)
